We loved staying at the Presidio. The main benefit is that we could lace up our sneakers and be on the beach in a matter of minutes. You can run on the running path or on the beach, with a gorgeous view of the Golden Gate bridge in one direction and the city skyline in the other. Being in the Presidio does mean driving or taking a cab to downtown, but we used a car service that was arranged by the front desk, which was very reasonably priced, to get into the city and took cabs back.
Apart from the location, the hotel itself is top-notch. We loved the breakfast and fully indulged in the wine and cheese reception both nights. Service is great, the rooms are comfortably and thoughtfully decorated, and we loved the fireplace in our suite. We also enjoyed the green touches, like the glasses created from the bottom of wine bottles - clever! All in all a memorable stay and a place I would highly recommend.
